NICE: Uncharted: Golden Abyss gyro tilt-to-aim feature


3:00 PM on 12.16.2011



This six-axis gyro tilt-to-aim feature for upcoming PlayStation Vita title Uncharted: Golden Abyss is like a dream come true for me. I'm the guy that flails his controller around trying to clean up my terrible analog stick aim, so this fine-tuning feature will feel totally natural to me. 

This new video from the PlayStation Blog shows exactly how this motion-sensing aim works. The devs have named it the Intu-Aim feature, and they say it's more for fine tuning to pinpoint accuracy, though the video shows that you can make bigger gestures to do the aiming with the gyro alone. 

This is an optional feature, but I'm already sold. I can't wait to try it out.
